The 'Hustlers' star and her fiancé Alex Rodriguez were originally supposed to tie the knot in Italy last year but were forced to put their plans on hold due to the global health crisis.

And now, Jennifer has said she’s concerned they will never be able to have the wedding they dreamed of but is willing to wait as long as it takes.

''We postponed the wedding twice. We had planned what we really, really wanted to do, [but] I don't know if we'll be able to re-create that. We cancelled it, and since then, we haven't really talked about it. There's no rush. We want to do it right when we can do it. We just have to wait to see where the world lands,’’ she told Elle magazine.

Jennifer's comments come after she recently said she and Alex had discussed the possibility of not getting married at all, after being compared to Kurt Russell and Goldie Hawn who've been together since 1983 but never got married.

''Oh yeah, we've talked about that for sure. I mean, at our age, we've both been married before, it's like, do we get married? Do we not? What does it mean for us? And it's just, it comes down to like personal, like, what do you want to do?'' she said.
